How We Determine Our Grades

This film has a similar feel to another Disney classic, Mary Poppins, the story of a childcare provider who shows up on the doorstep of a family who needs a new governess. A young girl goes in search of The Wizard of Oz to help her return to her family after she mysteriously lands in the magical world of wicked witches and Munchkins. Along the way, she meets three traveling companions, a lion, a scarecrow and a tin man. Another group of children evacuated from their home during WWII find adventure in the house of a stranger in The Narnia Chronicles: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Learning the art of magic is the reason Harry Potter goes to a secret school of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
